The Garage
11 November 2010

I met up with Denis a few weeks back to take some photos of his car. It's a hill climbing car that has been in the championships for two generations. It's also a tricky subject to photograph! We planned on getting some nicely lit dusk shots, but darkness fell very fast and I came to the conclusion that you need more than a few strobes to light something like this. In the end I am happiest with this shot, which is more of an environmental portrait. :) I love the motorbike in the background too. (Which I believe is for sale if anyone is interested!) It is lit by two strobes through an umbrella to camera right, and a third strobe in the car itself.

Denis has begun posting some of his shots too - here and here.
